Fun and love sewn into every stitch! 

The drawing will be held Dec. 15.

Tickets available at all our Meet N' Greets. See our Calendar in column 1 for locations, or

Contact Us

and we'll see you get as many tickets as you like. They are $1.00 each and you needn't be present to win.

When purchasing raffle tickets please keep in mind that our veterinary bills run in the tens of thousands of dollars each year. We never refuse to take a dog because it needs medical help.


*Scarlet was rushed to us from Hobbs where the dog pound planned a major euthanization before the Labor Day holiday. She is about 8 yrs. old, under 4 lbs. and healthy. Born with a defect in the curvature of her spine she is able to get around just fine but should have limited exercise. Is there a couch potato among our readers who can give our gentle and very sweet little girl her forever home?

If so, please Contact Us





Let's Have a Bath


Never bathe your dog when you are in a hurry. It should be a special time for the two of you to really bond.  Here's how:


1. Protect your dog's eyes with a drop of mineral oil and his ears by placing a cotton ball in each ear.

2. Don't use human shampoo. It has the wrong pH balance for his skin.

3. Try washing your Chi in the kitchen sink. It's easier on your back than the tub.

4. Fill your sink with a few inches of warm water and use a plastic cup to ladle the warm water over him or if you have a sprayer make sure the water is warm and hold it close to your dog's body. Make sure he is totally wet.

5. Pour the dog shampoo into your hands and place it in several spots on your dog's body.

Now here is the best part for both of you.

6. Give your dog a soothing massage all over his body while telling him how much you love him, or singing to him.

7. Gently and thoroughly rinse.

8. Wrap him in a big towel and rub him gently until damp-dry. Then wrap him in a dry towel and if you have a sunny window sit with him on your lap in the sun, continuing to love on him.
